Having problems with your Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens ?

Nikon D80 - My (built in) Flash will not pop up.

\015 I have a Nikon D80 that's about 1.5 years old. I was using it this week and the built in "pop up" flash stopped popping up. However the flash still goes off (while it's closed). I can turn the flash "off" and use the camera. The camera has a Nikon DX 18 - 135 lenses attached.Any idea what could be causing this? or suggestions on how to correct?Thank you!Bill Hunter\015

Answers :

That is just a mechanical problem. There is just a little hook holding the flash and it retracts when you push the bottom to pop up the flash. I'm sure it can be easily fixed, never the less your camera store or Nikon should take care of it. So take it back to the place you bought it.

I have a Nikon D80 camera that is about 1 year old. I has worked fine until about 6 months ago. Sometimes when I turn it on and press the button to take the picture nothing happens. I have to wait awhile and keep playing with the button and then it will finally take the picture and act normal. This happens inside and out. Sometimes the flash will pop up outside in direct sunlight. Do I have some settings wrong or why is it acting like this?
